I made a pot of pretty good spinach soup for lunch.

I chopped the onions, cooked them in olive oil, than added my stock and some rice and quinoa (pronunced keen-wah),  I let the rice and grain cook for a bit and then added the spinach, seasoned the soup and let it cook a  little more before putting small batches in the blender. 

My mistake was putting just a little too much in the blender in the last batch.  Not a good thing with a hot mixture, it needs lots of room.  And even with the cover closed, a bit of hot soup shot out, over my hand (owie), counter, cabinet, wall, counter, etc.  

I spent more time cleaning up soup than I did making it or eating it.
